    If one was handy with paint and maybe fabric. The fuse had some rust and flaking places as well. But worth the price imo. 88hrs on the ticker i believe.

    I did purchase this plane in February this spring and wasnt able to pick it up until May. Upon arrival the enclosed trailer that was included AT THE TIME. Was not road worthy at all, let alone a trip to AK. So it didnt work out and time constraints(long story) we made our way home with our tails tucked between our legs. Lol. Lesson learned i guess. Hindsight IF WE HAD TIME. We woulda shopped around for a suitable trailer,  price haggled with the owner over the derelict trailer, pulled the plane outta the other trailer put it together, got it wrapped up and been on our way.

    Nice, Randy. I dont even want to ask what improvement the t3 made. Lol. Well too late already ordered the 3 piece that bolts together 8". Im handy with a welder, is the weak spot obvious?? The t3 would probably make the "weak" spot of the fork magically disappear with some extra cushion too.

    Well looks like that is settled. Lol. How about any homebuild tailwheel assemblies? Or is that pretty tricky with angle, chain and release? It would be nice to see the shock variant homebuilt mains....heres a few pics ive seen floating around lately...maybe thats for another thread though

    11" matco dual fork worth it?
    So if your planning on strictly all off airport  and off runway (bush) landings would the 11" dual fork be worth it on an Avid mk4?? Or overkill? Im planning on the 21" aero classics for mains on the grove gear. Anyone made their own bush version tw assembly??
